Benjamin is a designer and researcher and has a background in architecture with an MA from the Royal College of Art. He has worked in architectural practice on projects ranging from small-scale interior design to the masterplan for London’s Athletes Village for the 2012 Olympic Games. From 2011 until 2013 he was a Research Associate at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, where his work was focused on analysing and improving the use of work environments through in-depth user research and a design framework borrowing from urban design. Overall, his work takes a great interest in how technology changes our cities and the way we relate to other people, and the way that architecture impacts on our experience of virtual environments. In addition to his research activity, Benjamin is also a Visiting Lecturer in Interiors at Middlesex University.
